Essential Products To Have In Your Makeup Bag


Double cleanse your face with cleanser

No matter which season it is, you always need a cleanser with you. Even though a cleanser is not something that stays on your makeup bag, it is included in the list just because many of us feel lazy to wash our face during winter because of extremely cold weather. Also, cleansing is the first step before applying any makeup product and also the last step to remove the makeup products, so cleanser is the must-have product for everyone.

No matter how busy you are, never ever skip a primer! Primer helps to seal everything into its place for the whole day and also prepares your skin for your further makeup steps. So, if you want a smooth surface beneath your makeup instead of a dry and dull texture you need to add a primer in your makeup bag.


moisturize your face

Can you imagine the winter season without moisturizer?

Our skin tends to be more dry and dull during winter because the air in our environment has no moisture which results in dry skin.
A thick moisturizer is a thing that you should never ever forget to add to your makeup bag during winter.


Taking a warm sunbath during winter is our favorite thing to do! But do you know, the sun when directly touches your skin, it damages your skin due to the harmful radiations- UVA and UVB. UV-rays are always harmful to your skin. So always carry sunscreen with yourself and try to reapply every 2-3 hours to protect yourself from various skin diseases.

Hydrating Serum

Vitamin C serum for skin

Sometimes just a moisturizer may not work for your skin and you need some hydration along with moisture on your skin. So, in order to hydrate your skin and make it more glowy and shiny, you need to add an effective hydrating serum to your makeup bag.


Foundation, if not chosen correctly can make you look like a clown so always be careful while buying foundations during winter. And try to use non-comedogenic foundations that have moisturizing benefits. Make sure that your foundation gives you a luminous finish and keeps your skin fully nourished and hydrated the whole day instead of cracking your skin.

powder in your makeup bag

Even Though some people don’t prefer to use powder on their skin during winter, it is always recommended to add the powder to your makeup bag. Some people struggling with oily skin face may need to apply the powder on their face, especially on T-Zone, as this area is more likely to look oily. Also, if you apply the right product, the powder can give you a matte finish even in winter. 

Lip Balm
